Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Bunny Flowers

Todays card is another from the Jane Netley Mayhew cd rom brought to us by Joanna Sheen. As you know I adore rabbits..happy bunnies is what I So of course I couldn't resist this image. I also love this backing paper which is on the cd..covered with so many flowers. I mounted both the image and the backing paper onto some lilac card. The image itself is decoupaged with just 1 extra layer but I've shaped it so itgives the bunny some definition. On the sheet that had the main image on also had another design on it..smaller though..but I used that one to make a 5x7 card. There were also some extra flowers which I cut out and placed by the greeting.

The good news for today is that Jeffrey has returned...thank goodness. He came in last night and had an awful lot to say. I don't think that he has stopped eating since he arrived He came on my lap for lots of cuddles and came to bed with me. Once on the bed he was determined to lie on top of Reg and spent a good ten minutes rubbing his head on Regs. He really does love that dog..bless him.

The weather here in the mountains is beautiful today. The sun is shining and the birds are singing. There is still a nip in the air though..perhaps the cold spell is here to stay. There seems to be alot of cars about's generally about this time of year that alot of holiday home owners come to shut their houses up for winter. I have to say that over the years I've come to realise that there are two sides to the village..the summer when there's a lot of people visiting and the winter..when it's only the locals that remain. This village is in a sort of time's how it used to be all over the country, that everyone knows everything about their neighbours and is always there to help. I have friends that live in different areas of the country and don't even know their neighbours. I couldn't imagine what that's like. Things change and sometimes we're not even aware of it. All I can say is that I'm so grateful that I live here. Perhaps I'm really a country girl at heart and always will be.

Well the coffee is calling and I've got to get my head down and make some until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
